The team at ARVORE were today proud to announce that Pixel Ripped 1995 to follow-up to the much-loved Pixel Ripped 1989 will launch on April 23rd on Steam VR, Oculus Rift and Quest. However, the Playstation VR version is expected to arrive in May. ARVORE have confirmed that it has been submitted to Sony QA and Certification process, and they want to thank the PSVR community for their patience.
In the newest chapter of the acclaimed Pixel Ripped series, gamers will take an unforgettable nostalgic trip back to 1995 in this Virtual Reality love letter to classic gaming. Set in a classic era when 16-bit was evolving to 32-bit and first-generation console players were evolving from teens to adults, players will take a trip inside (and outside) of their video game screens to save the universe. In Pixel Ripped 1995, video game hero Dot will recruit the help of the best gamer of the year, an unassuming 9-year-old boy named David, to face challenges together through the world of 2D games and the very first 3D games.
If you are not aware and wondering why there is the jump for 1989 to 1995, this is because it was the year chosen by the community. This was done by players who completed the first game encountering a time machine that allowed them to choose their favourite year of gaming, and the developers used that information to decide the year for the next game. Which has made a special connection between the development team and the Pixel Ripped Community since day one.
On Pixel Ripped 1995, Ricardo Justus, CEO and Co-Founder of ARVORE said;
“Thanks to the success of the first game, we were able to dedicate more resources and use more experience to create a game that is an even crazier nostalgic adventure. The setting of 1995 gives us a lot of great classics to reference and a whole new world to explore,”
We are certainly looking forward to next virtual trip into nostalgia, so keep an eye out on The VR Realm for more coverage of the game in the future.
